This is an amazingly politically biased article. I am very disappointed as a person of faith. I believe we must obey God as well. I find it hard to believe that someone implies that we should not obey God. If God is directing our lives and we listen, that is the best thing we can do. Christ said the world will not know us if we follow him, and I guess this is proof. To try to use God to support Unions is evil. There was a time that Unions served a purpose. However, they now are in it for enriching themselves even if it causes states and businesses to go bankrupt. That is not a smart choice. So Scott Walker is correct in his actions. But at least address those actions in the light of economics and not religion. The religious leaders who have weighed in on this are entitled to their opinions as free citizens of the United States. However, as Unions have no basis in theological doctrine – there is no moral imperative/authority that these religious leaders have in this situation. Thus it should not even be a part of the discussion.

Martin Luther King Jr: Fierce Urgency of Now
